Vice President Mike Pence is heading back to New Hampshire, a familiar locale for him but a region his boss has generally shied away from.
In addition to his Air Force Two trip to the Granite State, Pence is also slated to travel to Iowa and South Carolina, where the Republican Party still holds primary power.
Pence has made multiple trips to New Hampshire and Iowa since assuming the position as Donald Trump’s running mate in the 2016 election. He visited Iowa four times that year — the longest such streak by a running mate for a Republican presidential nominee.
Trump hasn’t visited the first-in-the-nation primary state since returning to the White House in January 2017. He visited New Hampshire six times in his bid for the nomination.
But it’s not just where he’s headed, it’s that he’s going with the President.
This week, reports surfaced that Trump is open to exploring a run for president in 2020. Pence is not on the President’s potential 2020 ballot, but will still vote for him.
